I’ve performed in the Sunflower Fest Summer Festival, Stendhal Arts Festival, Feel Good Fortnight festival, and the Earagail Arts festival among others. I’m the early years music facilitator every summer for the Playhouse Theatre in Derry, and also work through projects like Cruinniú na nÓg and cross community music programmes in N. Ireland. I regularly perform my own songs at events or on the radio. I’ve recorded here and there over the years and recently added ‘playwright’ to the list, having just staged a children’s fun historical play ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Drumfries Adventure’.
I love getting time to write songs, and to pass that on to children and adults all over through Songwriting workshops in our area.
Days are divided between working in family centres, performing arts facilities & schools throughout the region, and continuing to write music & songs of all kinds, continually improve the Music Box Singers & Sliabh Sneacht Singers, Guitar Academy, Boogie Bugs Summer Camps & songwriting workshops! With a backgroud in journalism, I still write occasionally too!
I run classes at The Music Box for babies right through to adults, and previously ran The Live & Original Sessions, The Anti Bullying Art Exhibition. I am co-founder of local charity The Exchange Inishowen. Things get pretty busy!
